My Students

Our school is in an urban area in Virginia. We take pride in being the most diverse elementary school in our district and represent about 30 different languages that are spoken by our students. Our students and teachers love books and make reading a special part of each day. Along with motivating our students to read books they enjoy, our teachers are always working to increase our students' academic achievement and social-emotional skills. We love having new and engaging books for our students to read!

My Project

Dr. Seuss books have become classics that students love to read over and over again. They love the illustrations and silly words that are a part of each book. The rhyming and repetition really help children to play with sounds and words which is an important part of literacy development. Dr. Seuss books are great read aloud books for both teachers to share with their class and families to read at home. Mo Willems is a funny author, who uses lots of speech bubbles with his characters. It makes our students laugh and helps them to see the importance of reading with expression. They love reading these books with another student so they can talk back and forth like Elephant and Piggie. It's always fun to listen to them read and laugh together.
